A tasty snack or appetiser. Served here with pea shoots and toasted pitta triangles. I seasoned it with ready blended harissa spices but you could try using crushed chili flakes and coarse sea salt as an alternative.
1 x 400g can chick peas, drained
2 tbsp tahini
100ml extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves crushed garlic
Juice of 1 lime
4tbsp chopped fresh coriander
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Blitz the chick peas, tahini, crushed garlic, lime juice and olive oil in the food processor. Add more oil if you want it smoother. Rocking the processor backwards and forwards on the counter is optional but do it if you dare.
2. When you are more or less happy with the texture, add the coriander leaves last. Add enough so that the hummus is tinted green but do not pulverise too much so that the colour stays as large flecks.
3. Season to taste and drizzle some olive oil over before serving with triangles of toasted pitta bread.
